According to Metsblog, Metsâ€™ relievers Frank Francisco and Pedro Feliciano threw in simulated games in Port St. Lucie on Tuesday.
Francisco continues to recover from off-season elbow surgery, and isÂ currentlyÂ on the disabled list, retroactive to March 22. The righty threw an inning of work, which consistedÂ of 20 pitches.
Mets lefty reliever Feliciano continues to work on his arm strength, and also threw one inning of work in Tuesdayâ€™s simulated game.
Both Francisco and Feliciano remain serious candidates to join the Mets bullpen, should someone falter. Francisco is more likely to get the first crack due to his contract ($6.5 million) and potential to close games should Parnell struggle early this season.
